§ Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he has taken during the last three months to build advance factories in Aberdeen to attract industries there and to encourage exports of Aberdeen products to northern Europe.
§ Mr. Darling
My right hon. Friend has taken no recent steps in regard to the building of advance factories at Aberdeen. He will, however, consider the city's claims when drawing up any future programme. The Board of Trade continues to assist firms in the Aberdeen area in their efforts to export to northern Europe.
